Long John Jamboree 2012 Day 2 Photos

More vehicle could be found on Yellowknife Bay than anywhere else in Yellowknife yesterday afternoon, it was crazy. I don’t think Yellowknife Bay has ever seen that much action at one time.

Despite the wicked wind and overcast weather a very large turn out came out for Saturday’s Long John Jamboree festivities. There was so much was going on it was hard to get bored. Dene Hand Games, Terriers and Tiaras, the Klondike Girls, Photo Exhibit, all the food, Ugly Dog & Truck Contest, Snowboarding and more and more and more. Of course the Ice Carvers continued working away and really helped center – figuratively and literally – the Jamboree around one big event.
